HATTIESBURG, Miss. - The Southern Miss men's basketball team is off to a great start with an 8-3 record. The team currently holds the fifth-longest home winning streak in the country and has won 26 straight non-conference home games.

But, the Golden Eagles' success is not limited to the court, as they are also succeeding in the classroom. The commitment to academics began this summer, when the team achieved a 2.962 GPA that landed eight Golden Eagles on the honor roll. In addition, seven players completed their degree.

The team continued the success in the classroom this fall, posting a 2.612 GPA - the highest fall GPA in recent history. Six Golden Eagles - seniors Dwayne Davis and Jonathan Mills, juniors Michael Craig and Daveon Boardingham and freshmen Deon Edwin and Matt Bingaya - earned high enough marks to be placed on the Athletic Director's Honor Roll, a distinction only given to student-athletes who achieve a 3.0 or higher.

"I'm so unbelievably proud of our guys and their efforts in the classroom this fall," said Southern Miss head coach Donnie Tyndall. "We are committed to seeing each of these young men earn their degree."
